Happy International Women’s Day: 11 Frauen un Ihre Weine

Happy International Women’s Day to all of the great women out there! Today, we’d like to take a moment to recognize some of the Austria’s top women winemakers, many of which have helped to revolutionize Austrian wine as we know it today.

The group, 11 Frauen un Ihre Weine, translated to 11 Women and their Wines, is a coalition of women winemakers joined together to celebrate their winemaking. Their philosophy states that while women make wine in the same way as men, a woman’s touch has a special ability to add something to the wine all on its own. That is something with which we cannot argue!

The member winemakers and their wineries include:

Judith Beck

Birgit Braunstein

Michaela Ehn

Birgit Eichinger

Silvia Heinrich

Jutta Kalchbrenner

Ilse Maier

Helma Müller-Grossmann

Silvia Prieler

Heidi Schröck

Petra Unger

So please join us in a toast to these women and all of the other wonderful, hard-working women in the world!
